Bollywood inventing new villains

It seems Bollywood is inventing new villains. Bored after the regular villains like Danny, Kiran Kumar, Anupam Kher, Shakti Kapoor or Prakash Raj and the mad race among Bollywood heroes to don the ‘Negative’ roles, remember Shah Rukh Khan in DARR, Aamir Khan in DHOOM 3, Sanjay Dutt in AGNEEPATH, Akshay Kumar as Dawood Ibrahim in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI 2 etc. It’s film director’s turn to display their menace.

Listen to Bollywood Songs on

After filmmaker Karan Johar winning huge applause for his superlative first look as dreaded villain Kaizad Khambatta in Anurag Kashyap directed Bombay Velvet, latest news is that eminent filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has been fascinated by the villain’s character and has signed south sensational filmmaker AR Murugadoss’s (who directed Aamir Khan’s GHAJINI) next Bollywood film that also stars Sonakshi Sinha. 

Confirming the news Anurag Kashyap said, “Yes, I have been offered the role but I have still to give my nod. 

It may be noted Anurag Kashyap is suppose to play a Bhojpuri villain in the film for which Anurag will also go bald to give a menacing look. 

AR Murugadoss latest flick is actually a remake of his Tamil hit film MOUNA GURU that featured Arulnithi and Iniya in the lead roles. The film was such a huge hit in Tamil that it was remade in Kannada as GURU (2012) and in Telugu as SANKARA (2013). Now AR Murugadoss is trying to repeat the same success in Bollywood!

Arvind Kejriwal - The next heartthrob of Bollywood?

It seems Arvind Kejriwal, President of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has not just become an iconic figure in the political arena but is soon set to become the heartthrob of Bollywood. The entire Bollywood flooded social media on his magnificent victory. 

That’s not all after his party historic victory in Delhi assembly elections where it literally swept the election securing a whopping 66 of the 70 seats in Delhi the latest buzz is that a movie has been made decorating Arvind Kejriwal’s valiant raise narrating this party’s expedition from its formation in December 2012 to the Delhi state elections in December 2013. The only limitation of the film is that it won’t be displaying the landslide victory of 2015 as the movie was commissioned before the Delhi by election.

Produced by Anand Gandhi, who directed the National Award winning film SHIP OF THESEUS, the film is a documentary and is ready for theatrical release. 

Titled PROPOSITION FOR A REVOLUTION the movie has always been applauded at the Busan International Film Festival and the International Film Festival of India. However despite accolades the movie could find a theatrical release because all the brouhaha generated when Arvind Kejriwal won the Delhi election in 2013 fizzled out no sooner Arvind Kejriwal resigned as Chief Minister of Delhi after 49 days in power due to backstabbing by Congress Party.

However with the recent victory of his party yet again in Delhi, the makers of the movie want to seize this golden opportunity to their maximum advantage. 

The film will also feature the AAP party members Yogendra Yadav, Saurabh Bharadwaj, Santosh Koli and l showcases the challenges, successes, failures, campaigns, criticisms, strategies and other ups and downs faced by the party since its inception.

Speaking about the movie Anand Gandhi, said, "We are in the final stages of editing and hope to release the film by June. It attempts to provide a fly-on-the-wall neutral perspective on the formation and evolution of the young political party, and in doing so, on Indian democracy itself."
